What happens when one of the greatest composers of R&B/Funk discovers a woman who would go on to become one of the greatest singers of R&B/Funk is Tell Me Something Good. Stevie Wonder was deep into his Funk classics like You Haven't Done Nothin' and Boogie On Reggae Woman when he first heard Chaka Khan & Rufus and the word is, virtually on-the-spot, wrote Tell Me Something Good for her. It's one of his best songs, one of her best songs and one of the best early 70's songs, period.

It's stripped down, too, right to the essentials. It doesn't have the multiple rhythms of a typical Wonder song of the time, it doesn't have the elaborate vocals of Earth, wind & Fire or Kool & the Gang, or the smooth horn section of the Ohio Players. But it doesn't need all that because it has Chaka Khan singing her heart out. This song tore up the airwaves in 1974 and is just as good today.

Sexy. Old school pure funk. Definitely puts her in the mood. If you can listen to it only once, there's something wrong with you.

This is basically an album of Rufus featuring Chaka Khan's greatest hits. It has a lot of oldies but goodies by the group and included a few songs that I enjoyed but had forgotten about. I also like that Amazon included this cd in the group of cd's which offer the Auto-rip feature. The Auto-rip feature gives you an mp3 of the cd which is stored in Amazon's Cloud. I like having this feature especially after buying a couple of HP laptop's that were manufactured with bad hard drives and needed to be send back to HP several times for repairs.
Eventually the laptops were repaired but I lost some of my music and video files that I had stored on my hard drive. The Auto-rip feature from Amazon gives a second place for your music to be stored. I am more likely to buy cd's from Amazon when they offer the Auto-rip feature.
